The Japanese car manufacturer Mitsubishi presented the new generation of the L200 model. It is a mid-sized pickup, known in other markets as the Triton, whose first generation appeared on the market four and a half decades ago.
After a decade since the fifth generation appeared, the new L200 brings a complete redesign under the slogan “Power for Adventure”, and the Mitsubishi Ralliart department also participated in the development of this car. It received a new chassis adapted to the larger body with a 60% increase in torsional stiffness. The suspension is also unique, and the Super Select 4WD-II system comes with an upgraded seven driving modes for different surfaces (normal, eco, gravel, snow, mud, sand and rocks) for better performance on and especially off-road. There is also a new front fascia, but also significant improvements in safety and comfort.
The L200 is powered by a 2.4L turbo-diesel with 150 hp (110 kW) and 243 lb-ft (330 Nm) of torque. There will be two more versions with 183 hp (135 kW) and 317 lb-ft (430 Nm) of torque and the most powerful version with 204 hp (150 kW) and 347 lb-ft (470 Nm) of torque. All versions will be equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission with sports mode or a manual transmission, also with six speeds, but with a shift-by-wire system that allows for easy shifting and reduced engine vibrations.
Inside, the cabin has been completely redesigned, but the analog gauges have been retained. In the central part of the dashboard, there is a touch screen under which there are buttons for AC. The car is equipped with USB A plus C ports, and a wireless phone charger.
